87403960_scaled_172x129 Hello!  I am Debbie Ridgeway, owner of Pet & House Sitting by Debbie.  Like most pet sitters, I am a life-long animal lover.  Over the years I’ve raised dogs, cats, parakeets, hamsters, turtles, horses, pygmy goats and a bundle of other creatures that I would find wandering about and bring home.  I had a goldfish that I won at the fair one year and “Fred” (aka the goldfish) lived for 8+ years.  I even had the rare opportunity to raise a doe to age 4 months before taking her to the L.A. County Zoo.  At the present time I am sharing my home with my 15 year old ShihTzu, Bailey. (We don’t mention her age as she still thinks she’s a puppy).

I spent the first half of my career working for the Auto Club, first as a travel agent (I’m well aware of those all too frequent travel delays) and later as a manager in different branch offices.

92995865_scaled_173x173These positions provided me with the opportunity to build wonderful relationships with clients, develop and cultivate my customer service skills and polish my organizational skills.

Believe me, these skills are necessary in pet sitting! Building trust and strong relationships with both the client and their pet is the key to success. And, with multiple pet visits throughout the day, being organized is essential. Outstanding customer skills are the backbone to my small business and I am here to take care of all your needs!

I have invested my time and money to educate and certify myself to ensure my knowledge of animal care, needs, and safety is current and credible.

My goal is to go beyond your expectations in delivering exceptional service to you, your pets and your home.
